Your Privacy is Our Priority: GDPR Compliance

As a community, a marketplace and a brand, we take data privacy very seriously.

From privacy buffs to the average internet user, the past few weeks have been filled with GDPR headlines, emails and blog posts all focused on changes to privacy laws and policies across Europe that affect everyone.

The law, broadly dubbed “General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR),” is focused on enhancing protection for consumers within the European Union (EU) and outside of it. The policy was issued by European Commission, European Parliament, and Council of European Union, and if you’re interested in learning more about the specifics of the law, its creation, and its intended outcomes, you can check out more from the European Commission, here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-protection-eu_en

If you’re the kind of doer who wants to read the law itself, feel free to take a gander here: https://gdpr-info.eu/

But if you’re more in the TL;DR camp, the main goal of the legislation is to give people more control and protection over their personal information. It also creates a simple and clear standard for all companies doing any business in the EU, which ultimately will make it easier for Fiverr and its community of doers in Europe to keep on doin’.

As a community, a marketplace and a brand, we take data privacy very seriously. In accordance with the law, we have updated our own Privacy Policy to be in compliance.

Feel free to check out the new Privacy Policy here: https://www.fiverr.com/privacy-policy?source=footer.

While these laws were introduced in 2016, they’re going into effect on May 25, 2018, which means everyone should expect approximately 1,000 more emails letting you know the change is coming in the next couple of days.

Until then, be sure to check out the updated policy and feel free to reach out to Customer Support for more information.

For months, I’ve seen this on the radar & wondered how a business with a vast global freelance and multi-lingual community such as Fiverr will ensure that its users/sellers are A – aware and B GDPR compliant – as in the run up to GDPR, I raised this issue with many sellers and most seemed to oblivious of the requirements. What’s Fiverr doing to educate around this topic – not just sending a revised privacy policy and Ts and Cs of its own? thanks
